Let me start by saying that I love Batman! If it’s anything related to Batman chances are I’m going to love it unless it’s just done terribly. This book captured the essence of Batman. I felt like I was playing one of my video games as I was reading it. I love being able to choose which ending I want. That is HUGE!! I’ve read many Batman comics and this one is perfect for the age group it’s aiming for. With the variety of endings, it will keep kids entertained for hours. The illustrations were amazing as well. They had such vibrant colors and depicted the scenes so well.
